    On a tight budget you can't hardly beat what you get with the Smith & Wesson AR's. PSA, Spikes Tactical, Del-Ton and Rock River are also good choices.

    There are some really great Christmas Sales going on right now, so you better act fast. :cool:

    If I were in your shoes PSA would be my choice. W/ PSA you'll get all your mil-spec parts, the others don't offer this at this price range.

    If you're really on a budget, might I suggest building your own? It's fairly easy, fun, and you get an intimate knowledge of your new firearm. All while saving a little cash as well. Check out PSAs stripped lowers, they often go on sale for 50 bucks and the quality is very nice.

    At PSA prices building your own and ending up w/ the same quality is going to be very difficult.

    Very true , I looked in to building one myself and realistically it was within about $50 for a already built PSA. Now just waiting very impatiently for it to get here . :( Im guessing it wont be here by Christmas as I have no tracking number yet and 5 of their 8 rifles available are on back order . im truely hoping the back order helps get my gun out quicker since they arent currently taking any more orders on the out of stock stuff . My next AR will be my own build

    The reason psa is cheap for fully assembled milspec is they arent charging much if anything for the labor.

    On a tight budget, PSA and maybe Spikes are hard to beat. It can be done building your own, even with milspec parts, since you avoid the 11% FET on the complete rifle. Of course any mistakes on your build and you lose.

    Honestly we don't know what your specs are so can only give you general answers.

    PSA is living up to their 10 day wait , I placed my order last monday and they called my FFL dealer today for another copy of his license as they had misplaced it . So they must be getting ready to ship it . Guess I wont get to sight in in over my 4 day weekend though :(

    Congrats. My lower arrived yesterday. When I talked to PSA, the gentleman said that they had 3500+ orders to fill. So they're doing something right.

    Last year at this time I was hoping my Daniel Defense upper would make it here by Christmas. Then by my birthday... At least after that it finally did come! :D Hope you fare better!
